All caught up now! Great first update. I can't wait to see what kind of drama keeps you up late that first night!

Well, we tried, in spite of how crowded it was then.

I love that y'all hit the ground running straight to MK. I guess those were maybe Spring Break lines at IASW? I can't believe POTC was closed either. I hope you got to go later in the trip.

Hmmm... I wonder who has other plans?
Disgusting is a good adjective, and the smell was just plain nasty!

I guess they were just spring break lines for IASW, and I couldn't believe that I was standing in that line to ride it!

I can tell you that it was not me wanting to stay awake...........

Thanks, Dana! Yes, they were in auto mode---I did use the sport/auto mode during the safari on another day.

All-in-all, I enjoyed using the camera. It's a learning game, something you probably know about.

Thanks, but don't be too impressed! I had a Saturday morning all alone. Kevin and Rachel left this morning to go visit his mom. Elizabeth had spent the night with a friend and Reid had gone to spend the night with his mom.

Oh, I think the crowds stayed around. For some strange reason, Wednesday was the most calm day we had.

Second, it sounds like such a wonderful day. I remember getting that text last year. I get all excited knowing that my room is ready. I'm hoping to get the boys on the Haunted Mansion this year. They get freaked out by the title. I keep telling them that Mickey makes everything fun and safe, but they haven't gone for it yet.

So, who is the mystery guest causing the problems?
Thanks, Megan!

It was a good day---That first day is always exciting isn't it?

That's funny about your boys and HM---When Reid went for the first time during our '08 trip, all he could talk about was the HM. He wanted to ride it first thing. We got to MK, got on the ride, and he was scared to death! Later during the week, we rode it again, and this time, he talked himself through it!

Well the mystery guest was not the oldest of the bunch..........

That's crazy about the line at IASW! My family always makes jokes about some of the "lesser" rides and how you know it's crowded when even those rides (like IASW, TTA) have long waits.

You had to wait for IASW??!! I guess I did see lines for that in December too, but we never ventured over there - the boys REFUSE to ride it ever again

Even in auto mode, your pictures turned out good - you'll get the hang of using that camera, it just takes time! I love the balloon shot!

I know what you mean, Sarah! While we were there for NYE, we saw the line for TTA curving all through the lines, and coming out into the park. I wanted to tell the people, "Hey, it's not worth it!"

My family jokes that when it's crowded, we'll even ride/see any of that stuff, as long as we can get in/on!

Thanks, Michelle. ---I was inspired by MeMom's picture of the balloons. Unfortunately, mine didn't turn out quite as well as hers. Thankfully, I get to head back to Disney in less than two months to "practice" again!

What? Your boys refuse to ride IASW? Have your resorted to bribery yet?
